My team and I are trying to transition our botany data sheets to use on iPads. We have several questions formatted as tables, including one for recording species, where our columns are species, height class, % cover, and vegetation type. Is there a way to format this type of question on Survey123? If so, can you add lines out in the field so you can have as many or as few rows as you need? If not, is there a way to link a simple table within a different app or something?

Yes and no.  You can create grids now that have multiple fields on one row.  https://community.esri.com/t5/arcgis-survey123-blog/survey123-tricks-of-the-trade-groups-grids-and-p...

But you cannot grow the repeat down yet.  You must use the plus arrow to add each one.

Hope that helps.
